1996 Profile Racing Rocket
I built this bike for my wife so we can ride together when we are off. We average 45 miles a week on our bikes,riding all over St Pete Beach and Treasure Island,FL.(Night and Day)
My wife loved how my bike turned out and told me she had never had a bike she enjoyed riding so I told her I would build up her first bike. So, using her favorite color and went with my passion of the Profile Rocket design. Once Dino and I found the right color for the bike everything else just fell into place buying things 1 piece at a time. 4 weeks later this is how sweet it turned out and I thank God for finally bringing a woman in my life that loves to ride !! She is still trying to get used to the loud brakes but once a car started to backup without looking and she hit the brakes. The guy stopped !!! Loud brakes saves lives !!!
Thank you to my brother Dino of South Pinellas Bike Shop in Gulfport,FL for the frame,Awesome powder coat, and going the distance with the twisted wheelset build again.
Thank you my long distance Bro Brett(Willinois-Pro member) for the extra orange goodies to make the wifes bike even more special.
